Sept. 30th getting ready for going south

This is the trike form Joy and Jim even with a fresh paint job (how cool is that) this was used for their grand children now being recycled for a good cause
Roger and Susie's Travels Well today Susie and I went to the dentist to get our teeth cleaned annual check up. Lazy day but we met up with Joy and Jim Gibson (these are new friends that we have met going to our local pub in our area the Fishermans Lodge) they have decided to add to our collection of bikes for the kids at the Isla (short for where we stay in the Mazatlan area) Joy has also donated some clothes plus $40.00 for Xmass hampers ( pretty cool for people that don't even come to our area in Mexico) We will try to talk them into coming down for a visit??? I will try to get a picture from them and add to this blog I got a picture of Jim and Joy but it is small I guess that will have to do for now

Sept 20 th I'm back

Roger and Susie's Travels Well besides getting ready for our trip south it seems that time is moving to fast Yesterday Robin made a quick trip to see us we were upgrade some sat receivers and the old ones had to be shipped back within 10 day (the reason for the quick trip) Peggy didn't come doctors appointments etc. We had good visit and Susie made excellent dinner. Today with Robin heading home I followed him to Arrow smith golf & country club in Qualicum and met Susan and Joseph there and they treated us to 18 holes of golf and lunch (Susan,s parents own the golf course they built it 15 years ago how cool) Susie could not come because of doctor appointments (it seem to me doctor take up to much of our time ????) We had a wonder full day and a great game of golf (lovely course and I will be back) 

Well I'm Back for a up date

Robin is still trying to figure how to get the right club out of the bag

Well I'm Back for a up date

My car at one of the car shows

This car a guy got from California which is the same year as my car  but diferent style plus all the under carriage is different he paid 14,000 for it 

Typical car show

A little better shot of my trophy they tell me that it has to sit on my manttle  for the year  I am still trying to figure out how I am going to get it past Susie But we are gone for 6 months maybe she won't go in to the living room ( we are very seldom in that room)

Roger and Susie's Travels Well since my big day of most improved golfer.  I have been doing the usual stuff working in my shop (major cleanup of the crawl space and shop) going to the golf range Plus local car shows the odd fishing day working on the other boat for next year yard work etc.( never a boring moment) Susie and I are going to start going to go to the golf driving range so Susie can have some practice and start to play I will be bring her set of clubs with us so hopefully she will start playing down in Mexico ( so that means I will have a extra set of clubs in case we need them ) We have started to get the motor home ready I am in the middle of servicing it the main motor the generator excetra over the last few years I have spent huge sums to have this work done. This year sense I used to own dump trucks and serviced them my self (for only the cost of the parts) I figured I better get back at it so that is what I am doing. Susie is starting to buy things that are on sale. But for the most part we have a better idea what we can buy in Mexico and what we need in the States so as a result we wont be over loading in Canada. We are planning to leave around the middle of Oct. (but not cut in stone) once we start our trip I will be more concident on my blog Roger and Susie
